LightJade plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. place your jade plant near a window where it can receive several hours of sunlight each day. However, aviod exposing it to direct sunlight for extended periods, as it can scorch the leaves.
WateringJade plant have succulent leaves and are drought- tolerant, so it's important not to overwater them. allow the soil to dry put partially between waterings.water your jade plant thoroughly, ensuring the excess water drains out from the bottom of the pot.
SoilUse well - draining soil specifically sormulated for succulents or cacti. A mix of regular potting soil, coarse sand, and perlite works well. Good drainage is essential to prevent waterlogged roots.
PruningJade plants have a naturally bushy growth habit, but you can prue them to maintain a desired shape. pruning can be done at anytime of the year. use clean, sharp pruning shears to trim back overgrowth or leggy branches. You can also propagate new plants from the pruned cuttings.
RepottingJade plants have a slow growth rate, so they don't require frequent repotting. Repot them only when they outgrow their current container, typically every 2 to 3 years. Use a slightly large pot with fresh succulent soil mix, and be careful not to damage the roots during the process..
